Hi there,

I'm a 25 year old girl from the UK, and I'm planning on going travelling in late 2011 for a year or so. I would love to meet someone of similar age etc to travel with. Unfortunately my friends are either not in the position to travel, or aren't particularly interested at the moment.

I haven't finalised in my mind where exactly i hope to go next year and 2012, but it's currently looking a little something like this (not necessarily in this order):

Thailand (west coast as i'm visiting the east coast this year)
New Zealand
US (California state)

I would ideally also like to fit in a bit of time in South America, but that's money permitting!

anyway, please drop me a note if you're looking to do something similar

That sounds like a pretty cool itinary.

i also am looking to travel sometime end of 2011 and would like to see similiar to you,
i find it quite daunting when it comes to planning money, what to do etc etc.

have you found any deals or packages yet.

my friends are the same they either cant be bothered, are married or dont want to spend more then £500... lol

hey, that's cool that you want to go to the same places.

i've had a look on StaTravel. They have quite a few different itineraries - some of them look quite good, but you can also create your own itinerary with them, you've just got to tell them how long you want to stay.

I was thinking of/ hoping to go around October time...

yeh i got a quote from sta travel for £1500 to travel to London>Dubai>Bangkok>Singapore>Sydney>
Hong Kong>Doha> Cairo>London

im looking to go either march april time as i hear thats the cheapest time for fares.

also i may instead just get a flight to bangkok and travel around cambodia, thai, malaysia, indonesia and laos and vietnam and then get a flight back from singapore to home. if i enjoy travelling then may do SA

Hi guys

I have also planed a around the world trip but have found that it is cheaper to book the flight separately not get a around the world ticket but that might be the route I am doing.

I am going to Costa Rica on the 2nd of October learn Spanish for a month then work my way down to South America.

I will be going to Africa on the 19th June 2011 and work my way from Kenya around September time to Sri Lanka and India then going across to South East Asia. If that sounds like I anything you might be doing please let me know it would be nice to meet someone.

I also have places to stay out in Puket and Sri Lanka which might save you some money.

Hope this helps message me back if you would like to chat or add me on facebook (Vikki Sophie Mercedes Knight)

I'll be around South East Asia at the end of 2011, if you fancy meeting up.

I'm a 28yr old UK male and am heading off travelling in March 2011 and spending 7-8 months in South / Central America before flying over to China in Nov/Dec and travelling down through China, Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos and Thailand before flying home.

Message me back if you fancy chatting.
